I have passed CCNA in the year 2006. I want to give the CCNP exams. In the CCNP prerequisitess, it is mentioned that a VALID CCNA certification is required. So i think i have to re-certify my CCNA to be able to give the CCNP exams.
In CCNA re-certification, it is mentioned that, to recertify pass any 642 - XXX professional level exam.
Does that mean that i can attempt for CCNP exam and if i pass the 642-902 (ROUTE) exam, my CCNA will be valid again ? Or i have to again give the CCNA exam and only after that i can attempt for CCNP ?
